Black Wolves Spotted and Filmed Running Along Canadian Highway


A woman named Rhonda Miller was fortunate enough to witness two black wolves running along Canada’s Highway 3 in the Northwest Territories. One morning as Miller was driving to work, she spotted a large moving object along the highway. From far away she thought the first wolf was a human. But Miller told CBC News that would be a strange occurrence “because you don’t normally see people walking on the road that far out”.  As Miller slowed down, she thought it was a bear, but then thought “it can’t be a bear because it was the wrong time of year”. Then when she saw the second black furry creature she realized it was two wolves running along the highway.

Miller told the CBC, “My body immediately became afraid, I was so struck by the size of their heads and their jaws.” She recalls that the black wolves were running between 40 and 50 kilometers per hour. As she was driving, Miller managed to capture the running wolves on video with her cellphone. When she arrived at a school in Behchokǫ̀ where she works, she shared her video and experience with teachers and students. "Everybody was just amazed. I think just the power of them and the beauty of them, seeing them running like that, flat out, is pretty inspiring."
